I forgot!

Yesterday was "Metric Day." (10/10...get it?) Anyway, a little levity in order to give the day some recognition:

Why the metric system failed to take America...
  • A miss is as good as 1.1 kilometers.
  • Put your best 0.3 of a meter forward.
  • Spare the 5.03 meters and spoil the child.
  • Twenty-eight grams of prevention is worth 453 grams of cure.
  • Give a man 2.5 centimeters and he'll take 1.06 kilometers.
  • Peter Piper picked 8.8 liters of pickled peppers.
